Florida's Carnivorous Plants

Florida's Carnivorous Plants

Florida is home to more carnivorous plants than any other state in the United States. From Venus Flytraps to pitcher plants, from butterworts to bladderworts; these plants emit an intoxicating scent to ensnare their prey. Amateur gardeners and experienced horticulturalists alike use these dynamic plants to introduce depth to their landscapes and inspire their natural, insecticidal value to gardens large and small. Carnivorous plants thrive in backyards, rain gardens and some even grow on windowsills. Growing guides, habitat ranges, lighting and water requirements as well as species descriptions make these fascinating plants an easy and welcome addition to any garden.
